Uhmm. It was so good. That one particular slice. But why? OH YEA. The crust.
Most of us love pizzas and enjoy eating it! Sometimes there are some that taste surprisingly better – just with the change in types of crust.
Why does the pizza crust matter?
Because it either adds to the awesomeness or takes away the awesomeness in a pizza. Yep, that simple.
It affects the taste of the pizza as you take a bite into it and gives you added texture.
What types of pizza crust are there?
Thin crusts are known for their ‘flop factor’. That is the tendency of the crust to flop or be turned and then retain its shape.
1. NEW HAVEN STYLE
The New Haven style pizza is considered to have the thinnest pizza crust! You will notice that the shape is not exactly a round sphere and it’s kind of irregular, that’s how thin the dough is flattened!
This pizza crust is known for its uneven blackned bubbles on the crust. It is light and slightly crisp.
3. NEW YORK STYLE
This is the most popular type of thin crust usually portrayed in advertisements. The crust is slightly thicker for a thin crust pizza. It had even browning on the crusts unlike the Neapolitan.
Thick crusts are more capable of holding more ingredients on top of it. They can also be stuffed with delicious cheese and more.
4. CHICAGO DEEP-DISH
This crust is unique. It is called a deep-dish pizza because it is baked in a round steel pan that resembles cakes or pies. The dough is pressed against the sides of the pan.
5. PAN PIZZA
The most popular thick crust pizza. As the name suggests, the pan pizza is baked in a pan. The crust is not as thick as the Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza Crust.
Uhh just look at that filling! The style of thick crust pizza is when the crust is stuffed normally with generous amounts of cheese. There are some places that serve chocolate stuffed crust pizzas and other interesting ingredients!
7. FLATBREAD / FOCACCIA
Flatbread or focaccia bread pizzas are common in cafes and bistros. They are usually served as sides on the menu. You can usually find them in squares or smaller shaped ovals.
So since the love for pizza has been so strong, restaurants and people try to add their own twists to it! Some interesting ones that we came across are listed below.
